Netherlands and Ireland will lock horns in the second of the three-match series. This upcoming fixture is scheduled to be held at Sportpark Maarschalkerweerd in Utrecht on June 4,Friday. I have taken the opportunity to gather three of the best betting tips from the NED vs IRE match prediction.
Netherlands recorded their first win in the first of the three-match ODI series on Wednesday. This was also their first win against Ireland in ODI since 2007. By the end of 50 overs Ireland was at 194 for 9 wickets and Netherlands at 195 all out. Although the match was a very close encounter, Netherlands registered a 1-run win against their visitors. Tim Van Der Gugten from Netherlands emerged as the Player of the match. The Dutch had earlier lost 4 of their 5 matches against Ireland and have looked to turn the table around in the opening ODI series this season. On the other hand, Ireland is playing an international after a gap of 4 months. They had played against Afghanistan but were white washed 3-0 in their last ODI series.
As per the ICC ODI Rankings, Netherlands and Ireland are both in the 11th and 12th position in the standings. Netherlands winning the first of the three Super League will be a game changer if they continue to maintain the same momentum. Netherlands and Ireland have faced each other in 10 ODI games, with Ireland winning seven games and Netherlands emerging victorious on one occasion. The upcoming matches will be a thrilling contest between the two teams and Ireland will look to turn the tables around after their first loss. Meanwhile, as the teams meet again for the second ODI match, I have assorted the top three betting tips from the Netherlands vs Ireland match prediction.
In spite of Netherlands winning their first ever ODI match against Ireland, the winner odds are in favour of Ireland. However I have the top batsman of Netherlands, Paul Stirling in my betting tips which is a lucrative bet to put your money on. Take a look at the player betting tips from NED vs IRE 2nd ODI match prediction
This first bet is for an Irish star who is considered to be one of the best batsmen playing for Ireland. The opening batsman is best known for providing attacking starts to Ireland in the shorter format of the game. Considering his immense experience in the English domestic setup, Stirling has fine tuned his game plan over the years. The Irishman made his debut in the 50 format playing against New Zealand in 2008. Ever since, the right-handed batsman has featured in 126 ODI matches and racked up 4766 runs from it at an average of 39.71.
The batting all-rounder has come out to play in seven matches against Netherlands and scored 355 runs from it at an average of 50.71. In the seven matches he has played against the visitors, Stirling has scored above 30 runs in 6 of these innings. His last three ODI scores are 118,128 and 39 playing against Afghanistan. Paul Stirling has played 12 matches under the captaincy of A Balbirnie, and made 728 runs from it at an average of 66.18. He was the highest run scorer for Ireland in the opening ODI match against Netherlands where he made 69 runs including 8 boundaries. Dafabet.com has offered betting odds of 1.87 for Paul Stirling to score 30.5 runs in the 2nd ODI match of NED vs IRE.
This one bet gives you an opportunity to double your money and we have Paul Stirling for you once again. Undoubtedly Stirling is one of the best players of Ireland and his performance and statistics speak for himself. As I mentioned in my earlier bet, Paul Stirling has come out to bat in 126 ODI matches and has hit over 25 half-centuries. In fact in the last three ODI outings against Afghanistan, Stirling had not only hit above fifty on two occasions but had claimed two centuries to say the least.
Stirling opened the ODI series for Ireland this season, being the only batsman from his team to earn a half century. In the seven head-to-head encounters against Netherlands, the opening batsman has achieved the 50 mark on three occasions. In the 37 away matches played by the batsman, Stirling has achieved a half-century in at least 6 matches. Over 2008-2021 in the first match innings, Stirling has achieved 13 half centuries over 61 innings. Sportsbet.io has offered betting odds of 2.70 for Paul Stirling to score over 50 in the NED vs IRE 2nd outing.
Although the oddsmakers have offered winner bets in favour of Ireland, the odds are below 1.45 and so are some of the teams markets listed. Hence here is one team bet from the NED vs IRE 2nd ODI match prediction which is sure to win you an assured sum.
The bookmakers are heavily favouring Ireland in most of the matches considering Ireland has always had an upper hand when it came to playing against Netherlands. Let’s look at the four head-to-head matches played against Netherlands earlier. Ireland has smashed 16 sixes against the Dutchmen, whereas Netherlands has managed to hit only 11 sixes in the same match.
Looking back at the last three matches played by Ireland against Afghanistan, Ireland had managed 15 sixes over three games. While Netherlands played their last two ODI innings against Scotland where they merely hit 4 sixes against their opponent. But Netherlands did manage to outdo Ireland in the first ODI match where they were at 4 sixes and Ireland at ducks. But we cannot infer a conclusion looking at only one match played. Hence Ireland are the favourites going into the coming fixture. With batsmen like Paul Stirling in the squad who has a career record of 109 sixes earned over 126 ODI matches, Ireland are a clear winner in this bet. Dafabet.com is offering betting odds of 1.77 for Ireland to hit most match 6’s.
